2018 was quite the year for breakout R&B songbird Ella Mai
and 2019 is keeping the momentum going.
The 24-year-old London native has kicked off the year with one of her biggest accomplishments to date, snagging her very first Grammy Award for 2018’s chart-topping single “Boo’d Up.” She also debuted a new look on the red carpet, posing for the cameras in a gorgeous royal blue dress and switching things up from her signature long & curly tresses to a short, straight bob.
While the win wasn’t among those televised, it was revealed earlier in the day that “Boo’d Up”
took home the Grammy gold for Best R&B Song.
The songstress took to Twitter to celebrate with the perfect reaction shortly after learning of the win.
The song’s producer, DJ Mustard, also shared his reaction via Twitter.
Other nominees in the category included Miguel feat. J.Cole – Come Through and Chill, H.E.R. – Focus, Childish Gambino – Feels Like Summer and Toni Braxton – Long As I Live.
